PROJECT: Park or Swan Bench

Saturday, April 24 & Sunday, April 25
1:00pm - 4:00pm EST

Saturday, May 1 & Sunday, May 2
1:00pm - 4:00pm EST

This Classic Park Bench can be the centerpiece of any garden or patio setting. The design is one I put together after looking at many different styles of benches, my goal being to try and capture the lines and proportions of something we may have all sat on at one point or another in a lovely garden or city park. The faux metallic finish of the legs and arm rests contrasts beautifully with the warmth of the hardwood seat.

Notice the bolts securing the planks to the frame, and the worn patina on this well-loved resting place.

The “metal” arms and legs aren’t really metal at all, but are cast resin parts. Students will have a choice between two designs for their finished piece. I am offering the traditional bench design and a new addition, a Swan shaped version.

The slats of the bench are made of hardwood, and will be pre-cut by your instructor. Students will be responsible for staining the wood to the tone of their choice.

Total class time: 12 hours

SKILL LEVEL: All skill levels welcome.

Maximum number of students: 12

CLASS FEE: $210 members, $220 non-members

MATERIALS: $35 (includes shipping within the U.S., arrangements may be made with the instructor for international shipping)
